VeganMoFo is over for another year – hands up if you’ve enjoyed it? We certainly have, and the quality of food posted this year has been as wonderful as we’ve come to expect from our lovely MoFoers. So sit back and enjoy reading this final week’s roundup!
Day 23 – Fancy AF!
You need to follow the link and read Libby’s description of this salad – it’s clear how much thought has gone into the creation of it! Including a lesson on the “mush factor” of salads, which I will now always analyse.
More salad today – it’s quite a fancy food it seems! This has vegan hoisin duck, five spice veg, lettuce, avocado, and kale, and certainly quells the notion that salad is boring – I’d happily eat this any day!
Ah, pizza. Pizza is the ubiquitous food, it can be both super casual, and lovely and fancy too! Lauren’s cauliflower crust pizza with olives and arugula falls into the latter category, and it looks so tasty.
Day 24 – Party!
Ok, here’s an aptly named instagram handle for today! I think however, this meal would certainly be fun at parties! Jenny’s theme this month has been to recreate burgers from the TV show, Bob’s Burgers. There have been some amazing creations throughout the month and I have serious burger envy!
Veganosaurus’ theme this month has been “Conscious Colourful Consumption” and this beautiful photo highlights just how colourful nature can be. Fresh pomegranate looking like a bowl of precious jewels – perfect for her theme!
I want to go to this party, don’t you? Dianne’s recipe for buffalo cauliflower bites can be found on her blog, send it to people to get them to make this for your parties!
Day 25 – Cook for your best friend
River has a confession to make, one that might make you very shocked…she doesn’t like pumpkin spice! However, apparently pumpkin is still good, so she’s made these pumpkin-vanilla cupcakes for two…and it does actually sound (and look) like a great combo! Just look at that crispy top.
Moon cooked for her Mr, whose favourite food is Mac and Cheese. Good choice, Mr Moon! This is her butternut squash mac and cheese, with some kale thrown in for good measure. Mmmm!
Kira’s best friend is a picky omnivore – but that’s no problem when you can make food as tasty as this! She hosted a nacho party, which is possibly the best kind of party, featuring ancho lentil tacos and cashew queso. Oh yes!
Day 26 – Showstopper Dessert
I think we have discovered a vegan magician here, because this is none other than a vegan pumpkin spice souffle! Who says you have to miss out when you’re vegan? Not us!
These might be the prettiest cookies I’ve seen. These are Italian Rainbow Cookies, and they are very showstopping. Look at the beautiful colours! And the chocolate!
The very modest zuckerbaby claims not to be very good at decorating cakes, but this showstopping dessert proves the opposite! It comes from her very own book, and has two types of ginger in it!
Day 27 – Meals for the young (at heart)
Katie, like many of us, associates peanut butter and jam with her childhood. Now, you can have it in a sandwich or…make it into blondies! Her baking looks delicious, and she has a link to the Isa recipe she followed, too!
Laura’s theme this month has been “Magical Unicorn Rainbow Party” which is as fun as it sounds! She has had some really great posts, covering some issues that need to be talked about too. Today, she made a bento box featuring rainbows and unicorns – how happy would you be if this was your lunch?!
All of Happy Little Lunch’s posts are suitable for the young – at heart or not! – and getting closer to Halloween they’re getting spookier and spookier…and even more fun, if that’s possible!
Day 28 – Brunch
Hotel food? Good or no? Well, would you believe it, this breakfast comes from a budget hotel chain in the UK! It certainly looks tasty enough – complete with vegan sausages, hash browns, and beans. Perfect!
Julie made “quinoasage” which I don’t know how to pronounce, and potato tofu scramble. It sounds really good, and she did a little drawing of it too – she’s drawn a picture of each of her meals this month!
Absolutely in AWE of Amber’s savoury french toast, it’s made with leftover garlic soup! Garlicky french toast! The best.
Day 29 – History: What would you cook for your favourite historical figure?
Clare writes about Abraham Moss, founder of the Metrolink…ah…read her blog to find out why this is a bit of a fabrication! She headed to Manchester to find some pie to feed him – mighty delicious sounding pie too!
Emil has been doing his own theme this VeganMoFo, recounting his vegan experience of surgery and recovery. Which included this pumpkin cheesecake, because cheesecake is the perfect food to help you feel better!
Lauren had African Peanut stew – which sounds delicious enough on it’s own, but take a closer look and you can see some gorgeous fresh bread in the background…now that makes it even better!
Day 30 – Holiday Test Run
Sara describes this as “Super 70s hippie food” but I would like it whatever era I’m in! Potato and spinach casserole – baked to perfection – perfect for a nice filling holiday meal!
How would you like some omelette? Vegan, of course, though Ekta describes this mushroom and red pepper frittata as resembling non-vegan omelette “perfectly” – and it’d be a great food to convert people to veganism!
This isn’t holiday themed, but who cares? It’s a mac and cheese burger! It’s vegan! It’s brilliant!
Day 31 – Halloween!
You could have SO MUCH fun creating these “pepper jacks” – making faces, carving pictures, whatever you’re skilled enough to do! Like a mini pumpkin – and stuffed with delicious food too! What more could you want for Halloween?
Need to use up some leftover pumpkin? No worries, Mrs Spaetzle is here to help! Here’s some pumpkin pasta, I quote, “more pumpkin than pasta” – perfect for any on sale pumpkins!
You need some sweet treats to complete your Halloween, and Rosie has you covered with these chocolate cornflake cakes. Click through to her profile to see the spooky sweets she topped them with!
That’s it from our final week’s roundup! Thank you all so much for taking part this year, and don’t forget our monthly MiniMoFo challenges will be continuing soon…stay tuned for what’s next!
